Episode 59: Preparing The Next Generation Of Leaders with Ron Boire
In this episode of The Thinking Leader, Bryce Hoffman and Marcus Dimbleby talk to Ron Boire, former executive of Sony Electronics and Best Buy, and former CEO of Barnes & Noble, Brookstone and Sears Canada.
Ron talks about his career and how being surrounded by great leaders allowed him to thrive. He reflects on the power of leaders' understanding when they were not the best person for the task at hand, and how making way for younger generations is almost always the correct business decision.
They discuss the importance of leaders taking care of their own health first, and how that will affect your employees and your business. They also talk about the value of recognising when it’s time for a leader to step down from their role, and how important this is in keeping a business competitive in the modern world.
